LARRY ANDERSON WINS THE 2012 JACK BENNETT AWARD

NEW ORLEANS, LA -- Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Larry Anderson is the recipient of the 2012 Jack Bennett award.

Anderson led MIT to the most successful season in program history. Anderson's Engineers advanced to their first-ever Division III Final Four, won a program-record 29 games and captured its second straight New England Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) crown.

"He deserves many accolades after the best season in MIT history," said Angela Lento, co-founder of CollegeInsider.com. "Winning 29 games at MIT is nothing short of remarkable."

Coach Anderson's squad ripped off 16 straight victories to start the season and, after an 80-68 setback to WPI, its only regular season loss, won 13 more in a row to advance to the Final Four. With a final record of 29-2, Tech finished the year ranked No. 4 in the D3Hoops Top 25.

The Jack Bennett Award, which represents winning with integrity, is named in honor of the former head coach at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. Bennett won five Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference titles, made five NCAA tournament appearances and finished his career with back-to-back national championships, the only two in school history. He's the program's all-time winningest coach with a 200-56 record. In 28 seasons as head coach he compiled a record of 480-175.

The award was presented at the CollegeInsider.com awards banquet in New Orleans, site of the men's NCAA Basketball Championship.
